Video Hymns with Lyrics

Higher Ground – Lord, Lift Me Up, and Let Me Stand

Higher Ground – Lord, Lift Me Up, and Let Me Stand

I’m pressing on the upward way
New heights I’m gaining every day
Still praying as I’m onward bound
Lord, plant my feet on higher ground

Refrain:
Lord, lift me up, and let me stand
By faith on Heaven’s table-land
A higher plane than I have found

Higher Ground

Lord, plant my feet on higher ground

My heart has no desire to stay
Where doubts arise and fears dismay
Though some may dwell where these abound

My prayer, my aim, is higher ground
I want to live above the world
Though Satan’s darts at me are hurled
For faith has caught the joyful sound
The song of saints on higher ground

Refrain:
Lord, lift me up, and let me stand
By faith on Heaven’s table-land
A higher plane than I have found

I want to scale the utmost height
And catch a gleam of glory bright
But still I’ll pray till Heaven I’ve found
Lord, lead me on to higher ground

Words by Johnson Oatman, Jr., 1898

Higher Ground - Lord, Lift Me Up, and Let Me Stand
Higher Ground – Lord, Lift Me Up, and Let Me Stand
